If she rufuses, wait. Pushing will only make her cling on to the bottle more. I know bottles can be a pain, but you'll only make it worse if you make her use a sippy cup.

try to give her the cup just while eating and then slowly progress with giving her only a cup during the day and then a little later start to try to give her one at night. also try having a cup and a bottle avaliable to her at the same time even if she doesnt touch it put it there so she knows it not going anywhere. good luck

Try a straw cup, my son would never use a sippy cup and started drinking from straws at the 8 months. I know their a pain to use because you have to watch them so they sont spill them but the ones from coles that have the different colour cups and straws work really well and dont really leak. It may work if she can drink out of a straw. Good luck.
